Really good food--we had a burger and the beer ale with grilled cheese. Both went with flights of beer really well. Hand cut fries--delicious. They also offer tours and a nice patio and lawn for beer drinking.

We enjoy Ithaca Beer Co regularly and highly recommend it. The beer is fabulous and there are several styles on offer, including five-cask specials. Their root beer and ginger beer (both non-alcoholic) are delicious. The food is likewise excellent and features food from local farms,...More

Not a fan of IPAs, but Ithaca Beer Co. has plenty of stouts/darker beers to try! And the food is excellent- get the fry flight as an appetizer while you decide what you want for your meal.

I think they will give you a bit of a tour any time they are open. But I am guessing, not answering from direct knowledge.

I am not a fan of keg beer, too gassy for me, I prefer a real ale. Is it all keg beer or do they serve a hand pumped cask conditioned beer?

I believe you have both Ithaca Beer Co. But regardless you should visit there for a great time. I really enjoyed the free shuffleboard.
